ignorant. so thanks, tony, for being so tolerant. i want to comment on what chris rock said obama is not our daddy. he was elected by us to serve the people. i think that's where not just these celebrities have it backwards, but i think the administration has it backward. you have ask any of these celebrity what is if the president or daddy, would have put 32 executive orders on the first amendment? there would be mayhem if did he it for maybe an amendment that they throw their arms around, like they were doing at that press conference. >> good point. end on a bad point. ahead, president obama's hypocrisy on drone strikes. some liberals aren't happy with him keeping secrets from the american people. that's next on "the five" how do you keep an older car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed you got to bring it in. if your tires need to be rotated, you have to get that done as well. jackie, tell me why somebody should bring they're car here to the ford dealership for service instead of any one of those other places out there. t

good for us. >> obama care has done so much for us right here in tennessee. >> ashley judd has responded. ashley thanks senator mcconnell, karl rove and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn't been made yet. the kentucky senate race is obviously high profile with republican leader up for reelection. rove's ad is meant to be a preemptive strike. if democrats are able to topple senator mcconnell, they would be taking a page out of a republican playbook. history tells us. 2004 republicans targeted then tom daschle and they won. 2010, republicans, well, they couldn't wake to take out senate majority leader harry reid. but of course reid survived the challenge from tea partier sharron angle. let's remember, senator mcconnell said his number one priority was to make president obama a one-term president. let's turn to adam green tonight, co-founder of the pccc whose organization has taken out an ad against mitch mcconnell. this ad, adam -- good to have you with us tonight. this slick ad from american crossroad

that. thank you for joining us, have a great night, we will see you back here tomorrow. lou: good evening, everybody. president obama today stepped up his campaign to avoid the consequences of sequestration. an idea that originated in the white house. republicans upon the president's new round of demands delay sequestration for months, nothing more than a play for more tax increases. hollywood a-list or bruce willis: not those who would take away our guns offering a stern message for the president. and the nations biggest red state going after the biggest blue state all about drumming up business. we will show you how to score this battle in snakes "chalk talk." with an administration that avoids consequences of their public policy decisions. this time president obama asking congress to bail him out of the so-called defense sequester, nearly $500 billion cut in funding to our defense department that will cost thousands of jobs and undoubtedly weaken our national security. here is jay carney offering a bag and consuming answer as he tries to shift the responsibility for action from
